Mrs. Wages Salsas and Mixes Help You Keep It Fresh - Giveaway

I love meals that I can create with simple ingrediants and quickly. Mrs. Wages is a company that has ease, comfort and taste in mind. There is no reason to slave in the kitchen anymore to make healthy, tasty salsas or guacamoles. Mrs. Wages packets come with everything except the fresh, main ingrediant.

Never hearing of this company before I was excited to sample some salsa mixes that would cut the preparation time in half.

Mrs. Wages® a  complete source for home canning products, ideas, recipes and so much more. Home canning is a homecraft dating back hundreds of which has enjoyed a tremendous revival in recent years. And with the help of Mrs. Wages you and your family can enjoy the wholesome goodness of home canned fruits, jellies and vegetables in no time.
They mailed me their Guacamole mix

Which only required fresh avacado, lime juice, and a tablespoon of water. I loved this one the best. It taste like I slaved, cutting up fresh herbs and mixing the right amount of spices for the best giacamole ever.

I also received a Classic Salsa mix

Which only needed a can of diced tomatoes or fresh tomatoes. This one was a little to garlicly for me, but my spicy loving girlfriend loved it.

The last one was Salsa Verde

Which I had personally never had or even heard of. I used some cut up tomatillos which I had also never had but really did like.

What I can Tell You: At $1.25 each these little packets are a great, budget friendly way to spice up the kitchen without spending tons of time mixing and blending. You can hit your local supermarket, farmer market or whatever, grab the fresh ingrediants and have a super side or dip ready in no time. I love this idea. I also love that you don't have to use these packets just to make a tasty, quick dip.

Mrs. Wages website is full of recipes that use the packets in main courses. Like this one for Scallop and Tomato Stew.

Scallop & Tomato Stew


2 pounds Scallops
1 can (15.5 oz) Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 cup Onion (medium dice)
1 pack (0.8 oz) Mrs. Wages Guacamole Mix
1 cup White Wine
2 oz Butter


1. In a oven safe pan pour the scallops (thawed if frozen) into the pan.
2. Top with the drained diced tomatoes the onions and the white wine and mix together evenly.
3. Sprinkle the top with the Mrs. Wages Gaucomole Mix evenly.
4. Cut the butter into thin pieces and place randomly across the top of the scallops.
5. Place into a preheated 350ยบ for approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until the scallops are firm to the touch.
6. Pour into a service dish and ready to serve.
Yield: 6 to 8 portions.

Note; If the scallops are not dry packed the brine from canned will release and need to be drained off. If this is the case precook the scallops half way prior to adding the stew ingredients.

Mrs. Wages is the perfect addition for your summer picnics, barbecues and outdoor parties. Plus you can make these ahead of time, they keep very well (I used my Salsa over three days and it taste even better the second and third day when all the flavors were married and sitting for a while. Loved it!).
